It typically occurs when I'm gaming, live streaming or watching a flash movie or stream. The BSOD's have had what seems to be random reasons listed as the cause of the crash. The 2 latest crashes report:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (with tcpip.sys reported as the culprit)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (with hal.dll reported as the culprit) - this one freaks me out a little, as I believe hal.dll is responsible for my video card's interaction with the other hardware.

As they continue to happen, I will update this thread with additional .dmp files.
Download BLUESCREENVIEW and install and run it to read the dump files created by windows. Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program. When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
